The beanie.

I just crocheted a small tube for the stem. slip stitched  one end closed then stuffed it with cotton.

Then I slip stitched it to the top of the beanie.

The eyes and nose are craft felt that you can buy in squares at Wal-Mart.

I used black on the outside and white to back the inside.

They were sown on with black thread.

The mouth is black yarn stitched on with tapestry needle.

The beanie is half double crochet.
